Description Ingredients
 
“The Gold of the Incas" Lucuma Powder (pronounced Loo- Ku- Mah) is a raw, gourmet, low-glycemic sweetener that creates a rich and creamy texture and imparts a subtle maple flavor. Vivapura's Lucuma Powder is low-temperature dried and ground, ensuring that it is raw and nutrient dense. Lucuma is an exotic Peruvian fruit once known as the "Gold of the Incas." The round or ovaloid fruits are green, with a bright yellow flesh that is often fibrous. It has been honored spiritually since ancient times. Within the Peruvian culture, lucuma is often part of celebrations and banquet settings because of its distinct and fragrant flavor. Although it grows in other tropical regions, fruits grown in the Peruvian highlands are considered to be of superior flavor, and are culturally revered. The Peruvians savor the taste of it in ice cream, as it is one of their most popular flavors. We love to use it raw ice creams. And we are so inspired by the rich, low-glycemic flavor of Lucuma we have created a new flavor of our popular Coconut Créme: Lucuma-Vanilla.

Power of Lucuma: Lucuma is low in acid, low in sugar and contains an excellent source of carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, especially B3, and minerals. It is especially abundant in beta-carotene, niacin and iron with significant amounts of calcium and phosphorus. As a raw gourmet low-glycemic sweetener, lucuma imparts a rich and creamy texture with a subtle maple flavor.

Packaging: 8 oz Resealable BPA Free Bag
Raw lucuma nut balls
Raw superfood cookies

  • Substitute for maple, butterscotch, or toffee flavors in your favorite desserts.

I love healthy, sweet treats September 16, 2017
Reviewer: Lee Kemter from Hempstead, TX United States  
The flavor is so nice that I can add it to oatmeal, yogurt or anything else to get a sweet, maple kind of flavor. I absolutely love it and I also love the health benefits that it adds to my diet. I like to have a  variety of foods in my pantry and this is a new favorite.

Review from a new customer May 27, 2014
Reviewer: Hotch from , Georgia  
I am in the process of moving and having the best protein and energy powders for my morning smoothie has been amazing.  I literally have energy to go well past the lunch hour, and that is huge due to my autoimmune challenges.  Love the fast service, great pricing and the Organic and Non-GMO verified seals that are so important to me.  After my move I will be experimenting more in my paleo cooking with your products !!!  Thank you !!!
